Minorin@DaiCon updates

DaiCon’s news page has been updated with some news regarding Minorin’s appearance. Of note is the fact that there are 2 types of tickets you can buy.

AWSM tix, priced at RM250, entitles you to special seats at Minorin’s Q&A, concert, and ONE autograph pass.

ELITE tix, priced at RM150, entitles you to slightly less special seats, and no autograph session. Unless you get lucky lar, with a lucky-draw.

Tickets are going on sale over a 3 day period at OneUtama, from the 1st til 3rd of May. That’s this weekend. As this is called the ‘early bird’ ticket sales, I’m fairly certain you can get them at a later time. The availability of tickets however has not been disclosed. Going by AFA’s example, AWSM tickets ought to be limited. As it stands, out-station attendees might lose out.

Now some personal thoughts. 250 ringgit is quite a lot of money, especially considering most convention goers in Malaysia are teenagers or in their early 20s, and not employed. Some people I know have been bitten hard at AFA (the infamous white board incident), so I’m going to be cautious here. What will the extra 100 ringgit entitle AWSM ticket holders to? Personal items autographed? White board? Signed on the spot or not? Hopefully DaiCon organizers can clarify this by the weekend. Whatever it is, I have a movie outing that day at OneUtama, so I may be able to get some more information.

On another note, I’ll be guest blogging at Quazacolt’s as his blog has DaiCon affiliation privileges (My dinky blog doesn’t /sadface). DaiCon news and special write ups (a history of TFM is planned, but I’m known to procrastinate) will be posted there, but otherwise です will keep on chugging, bringing you inane articles about Japanese Modern Visual Culture (God I’ve wanted to use this phrase for so long!).
